Twilight zone law and order
As I mentioned yesterday
The victim, a mother of two finally snapped after months of misery in which the youths jumped over fences, trampled through gardens and shouted and swore at residents.
Ms Appleyard said she had made several complaints to police about the gang outside her home in Knottingley,
Instead, she found herself under investigation when officers received a complaint from a 13-year-old girl, after Ms Appleyard finally lost her temper and pleaded with her tormenters: "Please, just fuck off". Two weeks later, officers called at her house and issued her with the fine.
It is an absolute disgrace when a woman like her is treated like a criminal while the real criminals are probably laughing right now and feel like they are unstoppable. Is this any way to get criminals to stop being criminals?
I thought Labour were going to be ‘Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime’? Apparently not.
